Kittitas County Comprehensive Plan Compliance – Public
As a result of the
Following Remand from Washington State Supreme Court in matters 07-1-0004c
and 07-1-0015 dated November 7th of 2011, Kittitas County has initiated work on the Comprehensive Plan
Compliance 2012 project for compliance with the Growth Management Act (GMA). As
part of this project, the County conducted early outreach activities in January
2012. These activities included preparation and distribution of a questionnaire
that was responded to by various stakeholders. The results of this effort are
presented in a Stakeholder Early Outreach report dated
February 2012. As recommended by County staff in this report,
the County has prepared a revised questionnaire. The purpose of the revised
questionnaire is to discover residents' perception of "What is 'rural'?" and
ways to preserve or manage characteristics of the rural environment they value.
